Yoga Assists: A Complete Visual & Inspirational Guide To Yoga Asana Assists by Sharon Gannon & David Life
In this book, world renowned Jivamukti Yoga practitioners Sharon Gannon and David Life use the word “assist” to communicate the idea that in yoga there are actually two beings interacting together on various levels of consciousness to foster a decrease in avidya, “mis-knowing,” and an increase in vidya, or the “knowing” principle.
Through this book, with the "assistance" of Sharon and David, practitioners will deepen their understanding of the fundamental principles of yoga assists and apply them in practice and in service to others.
